My son Paul is taking the week of the CGOAMN meet off from work, so we will be down Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Probably traveling back home each of the evenings.

Use locals have made the trip many many times with out concern for time or distance, were out to have fun.
So thought I would map it out for others ...

Just a guess on distance ...
About 5 miles from Red Wing/Island camp grounds to beach on Pepin.
About 10 to 15 miles from T.I. to Kinni.

We will GPS and time it before the meet.

I will say the run from t.I. to the kinni is beautiful for those that have never made the run. Amber and I did it 2 years ago and plan on making that run sometime during the meet this year. We may even go further, I really want to see the swing span rail bridge further up stream.

First picture is south side of Kinni.
You can see the sand bar, half way out water is about waist deep, should hold all our boats if we get there early ... About 11:00 to 12:00.

Second picture is north and south side, NO WAY will we get a spot in channel !

Jason thought we could stop at the ( a little south of Prescott no wake ) Prescott sand bar.
It would cut the distance ( to Kinni ) in half.

I was actually talking about this island. Not the one you posted Gregg. It's not the best but people hang out there and it's about the only other location we have other than kinni. I think the trip to kinni is still the best. It's really not that far.

I don't remember the thread it was on but there was some concern about the current in the marina at TI.  When I was speaking to TI about slip rental for the new boat she mentioned that it used to be a problem, but they put in a break wall that protects the marina. They are also currently adding to it to make it even bigger. Just thought I would pass on the info.
I think this has become an addiction.

That was me ...
It was years ago and might have been in the spring with high water levels.
Guess it not a problem any more ...

Might have to get a different van if Shorty is coming, not sure if the murder van is long enough.

The sand pile/ cove/ pit/ donut I hear it called so many names.  Sounds and looks like it will not be available for camping, hanging out, ect. The army corps is doing some serious dredging in the area and are currently filling it in. Thinking that it will be full in the next week or so. We can always pull up on the outside just not sure how it will work and what there will be for room. I will keep you updated as we get closer. By  August I should know the areas to go pretty well.
I think this has become an addiction.

Over the years I've seen it with huge mound of sand and other years near non at all ...
One year there was a barge parked there.

Are you thinking they will fill in the entire opening / cove ?

Is there a 'back side' that would be more protected?

Yes there is a "Back side" but unsure of water depth on that side.
